Also by the time you find a PC with the same build quality and same performance screen, your not paying too much more anyway IMO.
    Ain't that the truth, bro! Switching to a Mac was one of the best things I've done. Once you get used to the operating system, which in reality is piss-easy and much more intuitive than that of a PC, there's no going back to an inferior (in so many ways) Windoze machine.

    What's a Mac like at accessing other pc file systems on a network, particularly Linux based ones?

    As the Mac OS is Linux based I would have thought quite well.

    I just like to stay with what I know. Not had a problem with Windows 10.

    I remember when Windows first came out and I was looking at it and thinking 'What do we need all this shit for?' I found it really hard to adjust to it from DOS.


    XP Pro was the best and nearly everyone on the planet agrees with that statement. Can't see why they don't just go back to that for the next one.

    Not necessarily so, it isn't easy doing sharing between Linux based machines. I can access my vortexbox files from my Linux Mint laptop but streaming them is difficult, not so with Windows.

    Just to show the other side, I have binned all my Mac stuff and gone back to windows 10 on all 4 of my machines as its so easy and quick. Finally gave up with Apple after the four hundred and ninety second time it asked my for at least 3 different passwords to change anything.......

    Never had that problem with mine, Nick - but then I rarely change anything!

    Apart from posting here and using the Internet, my laptop is used for sending emails, a little shopping and some music streaming, although that's almost non-existent now, since I've gone the OSMC/Kodi route.

    Therefore, I just like something that's piss-easy to use, for a non-computer geek, looks good (with great graphics and sound), is built well and reliable - and less prone to viruses. For me, a Mac ticks those boxes better than any PC I've used.
